Transfer student Manabizaki Kyou is a swot, a person who spends too much time studying. His dream is to attend Tokyo University and then work for NASA! He will soon discover, however, that the high school he's transferred into, which was once very prestigious, has taken in delinquents from the surrounding schools. Now it is full of violence and gang fights.

Luckily, Manabizaki has a surprising skill at fighting, particularly when he's defending the peace of his study area. Through this strength he'll find his new friends, a weak boy called Iwashida and a legendary delinquent girl, Hasuno Nene, who makes him feel things that, for the first time in his life, he can't explain...

At first the series held a lot of promise. I liked the concept of a strong main character who only wants to study in a delinquent school and beats the crap out of anyone who disturbs him but deep down is a caring individual who would do anything for his friends.

Then the story (and the fighting) spiraled out of control and I found it hard to really focus on what the main storyline was. Ending with a completely random hasty ending I was very disappointed with the author. The story had so much potential which is why this series is so disappointing.

Mixed Feelings
The second manga I've ever read. To put it in two words: It's alright.
Story: It had direction and it had a goal so yeah the plot line was good I knew where I as a reader would be going after the first few chapters.
Art: Not great, all the characters look pretty similar to me.
Character: Yes large variety, but no development I guess? One shot, so yes very short and probably reason why there was little character change except for in the end the protagonist realizes there's more to life than being a astronaut. (If you don't get the joke read the manga)
Enjoyment: So yes ...
